City2Sea

Take on The Sunday Age City2Sea 5km fun run or 15km run on Sunday, November 20, and help us raise much needed funds to ensure we can keep our doors open for families with a seriously ill child. Ronald McDonald House Parkville relies on assistance from the community to keep our vital programs running. The most important thing our facility provides is the atmosphere of a ‘home away from home’. This includes a place where the children can just be children. Interacting with one another, playing games together and supporting each other, which is crucial to their recovery and the emotional recuperation of their parents and siblings. From a shoulder to cry on, to a kiss-goodnight, when you’re stuck in hospital, having family around can make all the difference. Our facilities ensure families can be together, offering the comforts of home during one of the most critical times in their lives. The benefits to families who utilise our facilities are that they don’t have to repeatedly travel long distances, sleep in waiting rooms, in chairs on wards, in their car or pay for expensive hotel rooms. Our facilities are run by teams of professional, caring staff backed up by friendly dedicated volunteers who help out with practical tasks and keep everything running smoothly. Our services are a vital support for so many families in need, offering warmth and inspiration and allowing friendships to be formed as families share a similarly challenging journey. Please follow the link to the website to sign up to participate in City2Sea, select us as your charity of choice and start raising funds for the Parkville House!
